Star Wars in Concert!

Star Wars in Concert

Well, when did this sneak onto the scene? Apparently, my head has been in the sand on this, as I was just introduced to these series of concerts via 1UP and Comic-Con, today.

With the 10th Anniversary of The Phantom Menace being this year (Is that possible already?) and 30th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back looming for next year, (and perhaps due to the success of the traveling Lord of the Rings concerts), George Lucas, John Williams and company have put this special multimedia, live performance together.

At this time, it appears most of the performances are in California, with a few in Oklohama and Washington state. Unfortunately, John Williams isn't conducting himself (that would have just made it too irresistable), but still should be a very entertaining show. I think this is a great way to celebrate these anniversaries, but you know what would be better?...

John Williams conducting the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road, re-recording the entire scores of the original trilogy! Now, that would be cause to get your "yub yub" on! In the meanwhile...

You can get all the info you need at the Star Wars in Concert official site here.
